It’s a fact that there has been a lot of debate going on around the world over matters related to sex of humans. People are stuck with the general definition of sexuality and seem to be in tiff with anything that is beyond their cultural conditioning, when contrarily, truth of the matter is that the paradigm has shifted recently. Sexuality has been associated with religion mostly, and all the religions take into consideration the mating between men and women. However, in 16th century, sculptures depicting homosexuality were built in the Indian temples. It’s rather ironic that homosexuality is a criminal offence in India, by the current laws. In the deeper context and understanding of sexuality, it is believed that love, in fact, has no gender. On top of that, sexuality isn’t something that can be controlled, or should be controlled. However, all the debates related to sexuality come from different lines of thoughts. Most of the times, these line of thoughts are biased and ill informed. It is about time that people learn to redefine the meaning and definition of sexuality. Even the films and media representing sexuality need to be sensitive about representing the issue. For example, not all gay men are fun loving and live out loud creatures. There are so many kinds of stereotype involving the nature of homosexual or even heterosexual for that matter. It is about time that these stereotypes are dismantled step by step, and people should be allowed to follow their inner self. Moreover, one should be just involved with their own sexuality, and not consider others sexuality their own business.

Frida and Emma had been best friends since preschool but now they were both in university. Frida was into photography and arts and Emma was in med school. It was the previous afternoon that Frida noticed that she was a bit uncomfortable or nervous around Emma, which had never happened to her before. That evening she could not stop thinking of the brightness of Emma’s chocolate brown eyes, her hair, her graciousness, her moves, and started thinking that doing a photo shoot with her would be appropriate since she felt like Emma could be the perfect model for her. Many thoughts attacked Frida’s head as she was lying in bed, and suddenly and absent mindedly she found herself browsing through Emma’s pictures on Facebook, smiling at her with her perfect face. She really did not feel like going out tonight, but she had promised her friends she would be there. Thinking about getting out of bed, she started to stretch, and take off her blouse and suddenly she realized that she was wearing a bra she had borrowed from Emma a long time ago and never returned. She got out of bed and got to the bathroom, where she looked in the mirror. Her “body was not bad at all either” she thought, and started to wonder if Emma also would think she had a nice body. So almost automatically, she took her phone and snapped a few selfies, trying to look as sexy and casual as possible. Emma -“do you recognize this bra?”- send. The answer came back immediately: “No, but I recognize what’s in it (and a smiley)”. Frida’s blood rushed to her thorax, and a bit lower too. Immediately came a second message, with a picture of Emma, completely naked and covering her most “private parts”. “Is that all you got?” Replied Emma, defiantly. “My, this is...
